"R. Caldecott's Collection Of Pictures & Songs" Illustrated By Randolph Caldercott, Engraved and Printed By E. Evans (published by Frederick Warne And Co., London and New York, date unknown) Part 3

Some more of Randolph Caldercott's exquisite  drawings. The whole book is in pieces now but the colours and the quality of the paper are intact. According to Wikipedia "R.S.'s Collection Of Pictures & Songs" came out in 1887. So, for only seven pounds I got myself dozens of these antique illustrations! I love the movement in the characters, the birds and animals portrayed so effortlessly with his flawy lines as well as the emotions and humour displayed in their faces and postures.
